Classic Arts News   Ned Rorem, Jos_ Serebrier, Carole Farley and Others to Appear at Lincoln Triangle Barnes & Noble Tonight
 
The composer Ned Rorem, conductor Jos_ Serebrier, soprano Carole Farley, violinist Philippe Quint and flutist Jeffrey Khaner will appear for a discussion on contemporary American music — and to sign their most recent CDs — on Monday, September 11 at 7 pm at the Lincoln Triangle branch of Barnes & Noble, at Broadway and West 65th St. in Manhattan.

The three recordings in question are all conducted by Serebrier. One, with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, offers three works by Rorem: the Flute Concerto, performed by Khaner, who is principal flutist with the Philadelphia Orchestra; the Violin Concerto, with Russian-American violinist Quint as soloist; and the symphonic poem Pilgrims.

Sharing the discographical spotlight is Serebrier's second CD with the Bournemouth Symphony of Bach works transcribed for orchestra by the legendary conductor Leopold Stokowski. (Next year, they'll be recording Stoki's transcriptions of Wagner.)

Serebrier also conducted the Scottish Chamber Orchestra on a recent DVD, released on the VAI label, of Francis Poulenc's La Voix humaine and Gian Carlo Menotti's The Telephone, both starring Farley.
